You, the Mets fan, deserve this book for every heartbeat that has skipped while watching a 9th inning pitch.
If you're new to advanced statistical methods, this book will tell you all you need to understand the deeper trends that run through baseball. If you're familiar with the sabermetric crowd, you'll find they have placed all the emphasis this year on the writing: the stats are far more focused and tailored to a book of this kind.
This is a book written with nothing but love for baseball. The roster of writers runs from Sports Illustrated Senior Writer Joe Posnanski to Deadspin founder Will Leitch, with a broad range of opinions and interviews included in between. The graphs are useful and easily understandable.
Note the quality of the editorial reviews above: all baseball people and writers of the highest order recognizing the excellent work of their peers. If you like baseball and reasoned thinking, you will love this book.
Thanks to Eric and the rest of the team
The greatest value? Coverage of the minor leagues. The MSM in New York focuses exclusively on the Majors, and promotes a bring in the big star, sign the free agent, dump the prospect mentality that has not served the Mets well.
Amazin Avenue and other blogs have brought balance to this perspective, and allowed fans to get excited or at least hopeful about players in development before they arrive in Flushing. They almost make a pilgrimage to Binghamton -- or at least Coney Island -- seem worthwhile.
